This is a delicious sounding recipe I found at Chickens in the Road. If you've never checked out the cooking section of her blog, remedy that situation quickly! You'll be glad you did.

Banana Split in a Jar

2 cups mashed bananas
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 cups crushed strawberries
1 1/2 cups crushed pineapple
1 cup halved maraschino cherries
1 package powdered pectin
5 cups sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Mix lemon juice into bananas immediately after mashing to retain the fresh color then combine all the fruit and the pectin in a big pot. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Add sugar (and a dab of butter to reduce foaming). Bring to a rolling boil; boil hard one minute. Remove from heat and add nuts (if using). Ladle into jars, leaving 1/4-inch headspace. Process in a boiling water bath 15 minutes. Serve over ice cream with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.
